Canyon Sainte Anne And It’s 242′ Waterfall

The Location

Canyon Sainte-Anne is located some 30 minutes’ drive from Quebec city, not far from the Mont Sainte-Anne ski resort.

The Canyon

As you begin to make your way through the trails in the forest that follows the vertical rock walls on the banks of the beautiful Sainte-Anne river, you will be taken aback as your eyes first make contact with the waterfalls.

Indeed, the spectacular two hundred and forty two foot waterfall stands higher than the majestic Niagara falls.

Enjoy magnificent panoramic views as you make your way across the three suspension bridges.  The highest bridge stands at almost two hundred feet above the scenic gorge. Also, if you are lucky, you may just get to see some adrenaline junkies zip lining over the gorge, right next to the bridge.

Canyon Sainte-Anne houses an incredible via ferrata that brings you right up to the edge of the waterfalls.  In addition, there is also an extensive zip line system.  Both provide an adrenaline pumping view of the waterfalls.

Would you like to experience a unique bird’s eye view of this stunning scenery? Then all you need do is try out the “Air Canyon”. This unique ride takes you almost 300 feet above the canyon at speeds up to 30 miles per hour.  Accordingly, you will enjoy a truly unique perspective of Canyon Sainte -Anne.


Most of the trails on the complex are easy for all hikers.  However, there is one exception if you have health issues.  The 187 steps leading down to the Laurent bridge which you will have to climb back up.

Additional Information

Incidentally, some scenes from the Hollywood big budget movie Battlefield Earth, starring John Travolta, were filmed at Canyon Sainte -Anne back in the year 2000.

Additionally, do bring your four legged friends along for the adventure. Dogs are welcome on all the trails in the compound.
